There are many concrete understandings on non physical things. Here’s an example of the spiritual concept of math.
Imagine 6 year old Billy learning multiplication. He understand that 2 x 2 = 4 and then concludes that 3 x 3 = 6 because of his simple sound logic; seeing the x as a plus sign (+) turned sideways and argues with Jenny who says 3 x 3 = 9.
The subject is clear when the understanding is complete. How long does Jenny engage Billy in this argument? I am grateful to have the wisdom shared through @Brian_Downey.
Am I Jenny or Billy in this illustration? For a certainty I’ve played both sides of this drama. With spiritual clarity we can see all points of view.
Imagine your thinking is water and light that fills all the darkness and crevasses connecting everything into one whole understanding. Now ask … what role is the holistic view in this drama of conflict? The spiritual answer is that I AM Jenny, Billy and Lao Tzu in this reality and I can choose as I wish.
Be the polarity on either side or the three-fold cord of unity Ask now from this spiritual plateau how should I act in any such drama when I know not where I AM in this ratio of conflict?
